1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steiner VINE VOICE on May 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
Cornelius Castoriadis is a shamefully under-read figure in philosophy and critical theory. His contributions to philosophy, political theory, economics, and psychoanalysis are extraordinary in their clarity and originality. This immense collection of essays provides a picture of Castoriadis' project of "autonomy" in toto. It includes selections from the Imaginary Institution of Society as well as a number of his other major works. Castoriadis asserted himself very early on as a thoughtful socialist, deeply critical of the Marxist-Leninist tradition, and devoted to an autonomous politics which was to give full scope to the investments of the human psyche. Additionally, Castoriadis possessed an extraordinary knowledge of mathematics and the history of science and his deeper ontology is heavily reliant on these domains. This collection also indexes his brilliant criticisms of Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Foucault, and the Continental tradition. A tour de force of original thinking.
